Bye-Bye, Scott Brown: Elizabeth Warren Wins Massachusetts Senate Race
Posted on Nov 6, 2012
Multiple news media outlets are projecting that Democrat Elizabeth Warren has defeated Republican Scott Brown in the Massachusetts Senate race. Brown won the seat in 2010 in a special election after the death of longtime senator and liberal icon Ted Kennedy.
The Huffington Post:
The Harvard Law professor and consumer advocate had narrowly been favored in recent days, as polls showed her with a slight lead over the incumbent senator.
Warren was the intellectual godmother of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and was its first head. She was denied a permanent appointment due to objections from congressional Republicans and from within the Treasury Department.
